Mould is a type of fungus that exists all around us in nature. When mould spores land on damp surfaces, they start spreading and growing on it. Mould play an integral role in breaking down organic matter. While preventing mould completely can be impossible, the only way of controlling it is to control the moisture in the region. Since mould only thrives in moist areas, keeping your property dry can help prevent any breakouts.
Mould be found in your home if you have a damp area. Kitchens, bathrooms and basement moulds often persist because these areas are consistently moist and these are mould's ideal places. Materials such as drywall, wooden panelling, ceiling tiles, mattresses and much more can have mould growing on them.
